  1. I love watching my little chicks run around with a worm. They cheep so happy, but they're still a little confused about what to do with it! Thanks for all the good vocabulary and notes, they help a lot with this first little flock if mine!

  2. We love our big fluffy butt girls. We enjoy playing with them. They love to chase treats (kind of like Frisbee for chickens.) We have some eggs in an incubator right now and 8 of them look like they are growing. This is our first time hatching our own. Our big girls came from a feed store too.

  3. Our favorite time is during supervised free range each evening! Watching their different personalities! In about a month I should start getting eggs! BONUS!! :-)

  4. I just love my girls.I have one special one, her name is Sophia. She really likes to talk to me and we have our daily chats. She lets me know when something is wrong in the coop..
    They all know when a treat is coming because they come running over to the gate all happy then they eat up like little pigs.oh my. I would not trade them for the world .
    Chickens are a kids best friend

  5. I love their facial expressions.

  6. I love my girls. They each have their own personality and I love it when they hear my voice and come running all 10 of them. It is so amazing the connection you can have with them.

  7. My kids and I love how excited our three get when we go outback. They know they are going to get to run around and get some treats when we are coming. Who knew chickens could have such fun personalities!

  8. I love watching them eat. Their little heads bobbing up and down so fast is funny to see.

  9. I love watching them,love the fresh eggs and have loved watching you and your blog <3 very awesome

  10. My chickens (and ducks!) provide us with eggs to eat, but they also entertain us and keep us company in the backyard. We have two Buff hens we adopted when the neighbor decided having chickens was too much work (can you imagine that! I don't think of it as work, I think of it as taking care of my feathered friends.) Then we raises some chicks ourselves two years ago. Last year we added 3 ducklings to the yard.

    I really enjoy your blog posts! :)

  11. When I asked my daughter Evie (4 years) what she loved about chickens she said, "feeding them worms and sharing our eggs with Grammy."

  12. I love chickens without a doubt ! They make my heart happy and I want to shout ! The way they walk the way they talk ..the twinkle of their eyes and the wobble of their heads ...brings sunshine and to all girls and even the lads ! They greet you with love and share in your day and make life beautiful in every day !! ������

  13. I love to watch chickens pecking around. They're so busy. I especially enjoy the eggs they give us.

  15. We love to watch our chickens (we call it Chicken TV!) and every day is an egg hunt because they free range our forest home all day & then we lock them up safe & snug at night. You & your blog are an inspiration! We're expecting a baby girl soon & I think she'll love chickens just as much as we do! Keep up the great work & congratulations on the new book! ♡

  16. I love the different personalities. They are so sweet and cute in there own ways.

  17. I grew up with pet chickens, and now I get to share the experience with my daughter. We have 8 assorted breeds in a brooder in our office. We named them after flowers, and my daughters favorite is a Buff Orpington she calls Daffodil. We enjoy letting them out to "free range" the office, and watch them scratch and pick. They all have their own unique personality! I love watching the bond between my daughter and her chickies! Congrats on your book! I can't wait to read it!

  18. I love how no matter how bad of a day I'm having, I can spend time with my chickens and begin to feel better right away.

  19. I love watching and playing with our chickens with my 4 year old daughter. She absolutely LOVES her chickens (with my help she hatched some out last summer). The smile on her face is priceless.

  20. I love how soft they are, and peoples reaction to that when they first pick them up.

  21. Other than their fluffy butts, I love watching them scratch and peck the ground.

  22. I loved my chickens. I loved watching them be so happy taking their dirt baths and hunting bugs, so cute.

  23. How hunting and angling aides can drastically expand introduction and bookings through blogging about what they definitely know best. Best of all its shoddy or even free.

Upcycling: Repurposing a Crib Railing

My babies are growing up quickly and this time I am not referring to my feathered ladies.  I can't believe my Little Chicken Tender and Bitty Bantam will be in Kindergarten and Preschool next year. Where did the time go?  Now, the only thing I have left from their baby days are memories and one recalled drop-side crib.   
Currently, the crib has been converted into a toddler bed for the Bitty Bantam, which means we just took off the dangerous front drop-side railing. Once we are entirely through with the crib/toddler bed we can't donate it or give it to anyone which means the crib is destined for the landfill. The idea of it sitting in a landfill did not sit well with me so I became determined to figure out a way to repurpose it. While working outside and chicken proofing fences I got the idea to repurpose the railing into something for the garden.

Viola! An Herb Garden Ladder!

Now Every time I look at this little area of my garden it makes me smile for a couple reasons.  One, I …

What's the Difference: Ameraucana vs. Easter Egger

I will admit that when we first embarked on our chicken journey back in 2014 I thought a chicken was a chicken. Once we started doing research we were amazed at all the breeds and their differences. My family and I quickly came to the conclusion that we needed an Ameraucana because it laid blue eggs and had a beard!  
Meet Edna, our Ameraucana...or so we thought.

When Edna laid her first egg we didn't think much about the fact that it was actually more of a mint green than blue, but as time went on we began to wonder about her breed because her glorious beard wasn't coming in. When doing some research I came across an article written by Lisa Steele with Fresh Eggs Daily called Ameraucana vs. Araucana vs. Easter Eggers - The Blue Egg Layersand this is what I learned:

Pure breed chicken, originating from South America, recognized by the APA since 1984
blue eggs pea comb muff and beard red earlobes tail blue legs light foot bottoms

Easter Egger Mixed breed chicken, not recognized b…

As we all know, chickens love to eat a lot of our plants which can be very frustrating so why not plant some nutritious flowers that you AND your chicken can eat!
